Education Authority, Culture and ATEC Officially Amalgamate to Form NNCEA

During the strategic planning sessions last fall, Chief and Council decided that amalgamation of NEA and ATEC would improve education service delivery for NCN Citizens as well as result in some potential cost savings by eliminating duplication. Council’s decision to review the overall governance and oversight of education was reinforced when it received the report from the independent investigators into the events of last spring and summer. This fall, Chief and Council worked diligently with the former school board to take the necessary steps to amalgamate the former Nisichawayasihk Education Authority (NEA) and ATEC into one new incorporated entity until such time as NCN can adopt its own Education Law. On November 19, 2015 the corporation was created under the Manitoba Corporations Act and is now officially known as the Nisichawayasi Nehetho Culture and Education Authority Inc. (NNCEA). Steps are being taken to wind up the old NEA and ATEC corporations. Read the Newsletter for the complete story.
